Boxer Patrick Day Dies From Head Injuries Sustained During Match Last Weekend

Boxer Patrick Day (above right) died Wednesday from head injuries sustained during a match over the weekend. He was 27.

Day was box against Charles Conwell during the Super-Welterweight bout Saturday night at the Wintrust Arena in Chicago. He was knocked unconscious during the tenth round and carried out of the ring on a stretcher. The New York-native later slipped into a coma after undergoing brain surgery but never woke up. The fight was streamed on Dazn, an on-demand sports streaming service.

Promoter Lou Dibella confirmed Day’s passing via an online statement.

“He was surrounded by his family, close friends and members of his boxing team, including his mentor, friend and trainer Joe Higgins,” the statement read. “On behalf of Patrick’s family, team, and those closest to him, we are grateful for the prayers, expressions of support and outpouring of love for Pat that have been so obvious since his injury.
